When choosing props I always consider various things. To begin prop must be SAFE FOR BABY been this the most important issue. They must be stable, use excluvesily for newborn session and have the correct measure for baby to fit. I always bear in mind they are produce at smoke and pet free homes as I never know if my clients may be allergic.
Most of the colors are neutral colors; I love grey, blues, green, creams, browns and off white for boys as well as mint, pink, purples and lilac for girls.
All wood box, buckets, wood nest, need to be well done and no nails can be seen, of course when preparing the set ups I always layer up so baby doesn't have direct contact with the props, is comfy and safety. I also have rustic trays, fabric nest, lovely dreamweaver bowl and crochet nest. My beautiful wood floor backgrounds give the final touch together with the headbands or bonnets which are delicate and unique.
I will write soon a post about baby safety when posing and so many shoot which are compose, but for now I like to show the props I have...
